On Thursday, the hearing in the drug case went on for several hours in the court. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) opposed Aryan’s bail plea saying that he cannot be granted bail as the bail has nothing to do with the quantity of drugs recovered from him. Advocate Anil Singh, appearing for NCB, argued in the court that Aryan’s WhatsApp chat has revealed that he used to consume regular drugs.

“The fact that Aryan was not found with drugs is not even necessary as there are some provisions in the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) where drug recovery is not at all important,” he said in the court.

He also said that the NCB will also find out how all the arrested accused are related to each other and prove the conspiracy case. Anil said, “In this situation it is not a matter of bail.” This can be considered a proper stop.
